Winter Jacket

Postby mike71 » Sun Mar 30, 2014 9:55 am

Can anyone recommend a good winter jacket that's waterproof and warm and is not restrictive when casting It also needs to be packable
I've been looking at a Greys Jacket from the UK but I'm after some ideas
Thanks guys

Mine is a Greys and I love it though on the really cold nights it could be warmer. There again I got the UK summer weight one and not there winter one.
I will need to get a replacement soon though as I have had it a while and it is starting to wear on the shoulder pads.

Regards :D

I have a Grundens top that I have worn for years, brought it over from the States. It's great for winter surf fishing, really warm and waterproof but not very breathable, so if you need to do heaps of walking maybe not the best choice. The sizing on them is weird, I'm usually in the XL or 2X bracket, but my Grundens is a much bigger size in order to fit properly and get the freedom of arm movement I needed. Here's a link,

I usually wear mine over my waders and the whole setup is virtually waterproof, unless of course you end up in the ocean. :shock:
